Abstract: Specific features of today's competitive environment and particularities of corporate strategic management under conditions of ongoing land reforms create the need to improve measures aimed at supporting and developing small and medium businesses in order to increase their competitive ability and production efficiency. The purpose of the research is to study and summarize problems of small and medium businesses in the agricultural sector. Based on that, the author presents and solves the following tasks: analyzes modern conceptual approaches to the development of small and medium businesses in the agricultural sector described in Russian and foreign literature; summarizes gaps and barriers faced by small and medium agricultural enterprises; and analyzes advantages and disadvantages of cluster cooperation in the agricultural sector. In the course of her research Rudneva has used categorical, subject-object, sytems approaches, comparative analysis, synthesis and logical generalization. As a result of the research, the author summarizes problems faced by small and medium agricultural businesses and defines particular measures to support small and medium businesses taking into account their functions performed as part of creating the cost of the final agricultural product.

According to the author, recommendations made in the article will allow to improve the process of managing clusterisation processes in the agricultural sector and icnrease efficiency of developed cluster initiatives.
